A woman was told live on the radio that her husband has an Ashley Madison account, a scenario that will probably play out about 10,000 times in the coming weeks. According to Buzzfeed, Sydney radio hosts Fitzy and Wippa on Nova 969 invited listeners to call in if they suspected their partners of having affairs.

A woman named Jo told the hosts that her husband "went a bit funny" when they heard the news about the Ashley Madison hack. (The website, a service for married people who want to have affairs, was hacked and the information of users was released on the Internet. But let's be real, you already knew that.) Jo gave the hosts her husband's details, and they looked him up to see if he was a member of Ashley Madison. He was.

Jo was upset, obviously, and when she angrily hung up, the hosts basically had an existential breakdown. One said, "I don't know if we should have done that. It hasn't left me with a good feeling." I understand that, dude, but no one got you in this situation except yourself. No one made you broadcast people while surprising them with the info that a person they love betrayed them. If you're looking for more of a "good feeling," maybe you could do something else. Like have an ice cream cone or go for a walk.
